Last weekend I received amazing news -- that I won the Grand Prize (an unrestricted monetary award of $5,000) in the Dave Bown Projects 6th Semiannual Competition. The jurors were Marisa J. Pascucci, Curator of 20th Century & Contemporary Art at the Boca Raton Museum of Art; Reto Thüring, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art; and Adelina Vlas, Assistant Curator for Modern & Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I am honored to be chosen by curators from such esteemed institutions, and I am so grateful to Dave Bown for creating this award. I am already putting the money to good use - on materials for new work for two upcoming solo exhibitions. Exhibition announcements coming soon!

SWIM, an art exhibition that is part of the 2013 Malta Arts Festival in Birgu, Malta. Mike Fleming and I are super excited to travel there to install the work next week. The opening reception is on July 1, and the show is up until July 31.
